Paper Abstract

Visual orientation in our 3-dimensional environment just like directional auditory information in the world of sound require 2 spacially separated sensors. The differences in the information our 2 eyes or ears receive allow our brain to add the all important third dimension to the 2-dimensional image, which only one eye can see. Similarly, only one ear would be unable to detect directional information in soundspace.
